Body Sculpting with TruSculpt 3D®

Some areas of the body just seem to attract fat. The midsection, buttocks, hips, and thighs may begin to sport rolls and bulges even if the number on the scale doesn’t show much movement. Even worse is the fact that these problem spots don’t always respond to exercise and diet, leaving you with a less-than-desirable body contour and a blow to your self-confidence. When you can’t get rid of isolated pockets of fat through your efforts, there is another solution that is relatively quick, effective, and noninvasive.

TruSculpt 3D® is the latest nonsurgical, no-downtime procedure that’s been proven in clinical studies to treat isolated areas of lingering fat that are resistant to diet and exercise. This treatment uses radiofrequency energy to melt unwanted fat cells so that they over time can be eliminated through the natural processes in the body. Since the RF energy targets the cells themselves, the surrounding skin and tissue remain undamaged throughout the process. In fact, the heating mechanism can actually be beneficial to the dermis, leading to the firming of the treatment area for an even smoother result.

A New Approach to Stubborn Fat

In the past, the only way to address stubborn areas of fat was through surgical procedures such as abdominoplasty and liposuction. While these procedures were – and continue to be – useful for some patients, they also require anesthesia, incisions and a recovery process afterward. There are risks related to any type of surgery and potential complications if the recovery process doesn’t go as planned. Today, our patients can forgo surgery, related risks, and residual scarring in favor of cutting-edge procedures that offer outstanding results to the right individual.

TruSculpt 3D® is one of those procedures that allow our clients to enjoy cosmetic enhancement without surgery. This energy-based procedure delivers controlled, comfortable doses of therapeutic heat to the target zone, eliminating fat cells while firming and smoothing the area over time. The heat penetrates deeply into the tissue where it has the most significant effect without burning or otherwise damaging the area.

Because the body eliminates fat cells over time, your results develop gradually. You might look like you spent some extra time at the gym rather than undergoing a cosmetic procedure. Because fat cells are eliminated, the results of your TruSculpt 3D® treatment will last indefinitely as long as you maintain a healthy weight.

Is TruSculpt 3D® Right for Me?

TruSculpt 3D® is an ideal alternative for both women and men who live a healthy lifestyle but have targeted, problem areas that diets and exercise cannot fix. It was not created for weight loss and should only be performed on patients that have achieved a stable weight. The procedure is not advised for women who are pregnant or individuals with cardiac pacemakers or other implanted devices.

TruSculpt 3D® is a versatile treatment that can be used on any of the following areas:

  • Abdomen and waistline
  • Hips and flanks
  • Inner and outer thighs
  • Buttocks
  • Neck and chin
  • Back and bra folds

Dr. Upton will evaluate your concerns and your aesthetic goals at your consultation to determine whether TruSculpt 3D® is the right treatment option for you.

Comfortable. Controlled. Effective.

A TruSculpt® treatment may take anywhere from 15 minutes to close to an hour to complete, depending on the size of the area to be addressed. No anesthesia or topical anesthetic is needed before the process begins. A handheld applicator glides across the skin, delivering uniform heating to the underlying tissue to produce the desired result. There is mild discomfort as the heat goes to work, targeting, and destroying the fat cells you want to eliminate.

After the procedure, you may notice slight redness, swelling, and mild tenderness in the treatment area. However, there is no real pain associated with the recovery, and you should be able to resume activities as soon as you leave our office. We do recommend that you avoid hot baths, hot tubs, and saunas for the first 24 hours to prevent possible complications. Some patients prefer to rest at home after the procedure and head back to work the next day.

Maximizing Your Contouring Efforts

You will start to notice some positive results of your TruSculpt treatment a few weeks after your session. Skin may feel firmer, and the treatment area may begin to shrink slightly. It does take time for all of the treated fat cells to be eliminated from the body, so full results aren’t typically seen for about three months. While some patients meet their body contouring goals after just one treatment, it is possible you will need anywhere from one to three treatment sessions to obtain the outcome you want. Subsequent sessions are spaced twelve weeks apart to ensure optimal results. Once that result is achieved, no further procedures should be necessary as long as you maintain a healthy weight and lifestyle.
